With more than 17,500 islands, Indonesia is the biggest island nation in the world. Yes, more than 17,500. So why is it that most of us have only heard of Bali? 😉
Here’s one of our top picks of islands in Indonesia — Sumba.
Located between the islands of Komodo and Sumbawa, Sumba is one of Indonesia’s hidden gems. To get there, you need to take a plane from Bali to Tambolaka. Sumba offers an unbelievable natural beauty, idyllic beaches, well-preserved traditional village culture, and is known for the precious art of Tenun Ikat handwoven fabric.
Stretching across 560 acres of unspoiled natural land, lies Nihi Sumba, named one of the world’s best hotel in the world. Nihi Sumba brings luxury to another level of perfection — The resort features a yoga with breathtaking views, surf lessons at coconut cove, hikes into local villages and sunset massages overlooking miles of Nihiwatu Beach on the Indian ocean coastline 🧘🏻♀️🧘🏼♂️
